    Braefoot reviews
    Very good beds and linen, working kitchen, comfortable living room in addition to a luminous conservatory. All in all, a very comfortable cottage with all of the amenities (except wifi, which we knew. Wifi was available at 250 meters distance at the Ariundle Center.)
    Mrs Aeschliman - August 2018
    Braefoot is a well kept very practical place to stay, it has everything you need. We had a great holiday!
    Mr Marlow - July 2018
    Das Haus liegt auf der Halbinsel Ardnamurchan, scheinbar nicht weit von Fort Williams entfernt, aber nur mit großer Umfahrung des Sees oder über eine Fähre (8,- einfach) erreichbar. Dadurch ist man wirklich "ab vom Schuss", was einerseits schön ist, andererseits aber auch lästig sein kann, zB wenn man gerne mal in einem Supermarkt einkaufen würde und nicht nur in dem kleinen Lädchen in Strontian. Auf der Halbinsel gibt es aber ein paar Restaurants und kleine Sehenswürdigkeiten, man kann sich die Zeit ganz gut vertreiben (zB tolle alte Bäume im Aryundle Park und im Strontian Community Woodland, und eine kleine deutsche Bäckerei in Salen). Als Ausgangspunkt um die gesamten westlichen Highlands zu erkunden, eignet sich die Hütte nicht, dazu bräuchte man eine bessere Anbindung. Die Hütte selbst ist geräumig und sehr gut ausgestattet. Sie zeichnet sich durch eine große Küche und einen hellen Wintergarten aus, in dem man lesend oder CDs hörend verregnete Nachmittage verbummeln kann. Die beiden Schlafzimmer sind durch Küche und Wohnzimmer getrennt, insofern haben beide Parteien ihre Ruhe. Die Matratzen sind weich, die Lattenroste hart. Ein Bad mit Badewanne und ein Gästeklo. Ihm Wohnzimmer gibt es ein volles Bücherregal u.a. mit Schottland-bezogenen Büchern und örtlichen Wanderkarten, außerdem einen Fernseher mit DVD- und VHS-Player und ein paar Filme. Es gibt kein WLAN und nur schlechten Handyempfang, aber 3 Minuten entfernt ein Café mit Wifi (Aryundle Centre). Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, man kann beim Plätschern des nahen Baches wunderbar einschlafen. TRANSLATION: The house is located on the peninsula Ardnamurchan, apparently not far away from Fort Williams, but only with a large bypass of the lake or a ferry (8, - easy) reachable. This makes you really "off the beaten track", which on the one hand is beautiful, but on the other hand can be annoying, for example, if you would like to shop in a supermarket and not just in the small store in Strontian. On the peninsula there are a few restaurants and small attractions, you can pass the time quite well (eg great old trees in Aryundle Park and the Strontian Community Woodland, and a small German bakery in Salen). As a starting point to explore the entire Western Highlands, the hut is not, it would need a better connection. The cottage itself is spacious and very well equipped. It is characterized by a large kitchen and a bright conservatory, where you can read or read CD listening rainy afternoons. The two bedrooms are separated by kitchen and living room, so both parties have their rest. The mattresses are soft, the slats rust hard. A bathroom with bath and a guest toilet. His living room has a full bookcase u.a. with Scotland-themed books and local maps, plus a TV with DVD and VHS players and a few movies. There is no Wi-Fi and poor cell phone reception, but 3 minutes away is a cafe with Wifi (Aryundle Center). We felt very well, you can sleep in the splashing of the nearby stream wonderful.
    Mr Schkode - July 2018
    very pleasant acomodation, great place. Good access to local services (IC, fuel station, shop ...)
    Mrs Guthová - June 2018
    Another great stay in this lovely old cottage. Lots of walks for us, shop that stocks nearly everything you would want, Strontian hotel and the Ariandle Centre nearby for meals plus others not to far away. Already signed up for next year again
    Mr Glasgow - September 2017
    I can't help but say though, that the whole holiday was FANTASTIC - what a beautiful place. The cottage is well situated to get to everything. It is in a peaceful location - I slept like I have never slept! The cottage is very cosy and nice and clean. I thought it could probably do with a lick of paint here and there and a general update but honestly, I'm nitpicking! It had everything you could possibly want. We didn't eat out a great deal tbh (did go into Fort William one day and ate at the Cobblers Arms I think it was called which was fantastic) - tended to cook a large breakfast and then cooked an evening meal back at the cottage. We had buzzards in the garden and on the last day, a beautiful deer which allowed us to get ever so close to take photos - wasn't shy at all. I would definitely stay here again. A slight negative (some might say positive) was that there was no wi-fi. My partner and I thought this would not be a problem but as we were coming back to the cottage at the end of each day and my partner does a lot of research all the time, it was missed. But I was secretly glad ha!
    Mrs Franklin - July 2017
    Nice location and comfortable cottage with everything needed for the stay
    Mrs Barron - August 2016
    Our 4th year back at Braefoot and we have already booked up again for next year. Great weather this year so we're able to get some walking in. A few nice hotels and eateries about and a well stocked local shop in the village. Especially nice being able to sit in the sun lounge in the evenings. Peter and Jenny Glasgow
    Mr Glasgow - May 2016
    We know the Strontian area well, and would recommend it to anyone. The scenery is beautiful and there is interesting wildlife, walks from 'family' to 'challenging' and great places to eat. Until now we have stayed in some of the great b&b's available in the area, but this time we decided to try self-catering, and Braefoot was perfect. The cottage is very well equipped, the beds are comfortable and the 'relaxing' areas - lounge and sunroom are great.
    Mrs Mundy - June 2014
    We enjoyed our holiday at Braefoot and found the house to be both clean and comfortable. Excellent location with access to all areas about. Glenfinnan and the old railway carriage for lunch well worth a trip. the Arundle centre, 5 minutes away and the Strontian hotel good for meals.
    Mr Glasgow - May 2014
    I have stayed in Braefoot on many occasions, always a lovely place to be. The peace, the scenery , the wild life, never disappoints, no matter what the weather. Will certainly be coming back , has I have stayed in many locations around Scotland and this is one of my favourites . The new conservatory being fitted has i left this time will only add to its appeal and make it even more enjoyable . Can't wait to return, and bring my new wife. Fantastic
    Mr Luker - September 2013
    The cottage is very well equipped and friendly for families. We were only two, but appreciated the perfect equipped kitchen, living room and washing facilities. The area is absolutely beautiful, with Strontian village not far away.
    Mr Wagenblatt - September 2013
    Lovely cottage with everything we needed. Lovely views and just perfect to sit in the garden, watching the birds and butterflies, listening to the stream beside the cottage. We saw red deer very close to the cottage. The area is remote but there is a well-stocked shop less than a mile away. The Ariundle Centre, just a few minutes walk up the road, offers excellent food and drink at very good prices and the staff were very friendly. There are terrific footpaths and plenty of good walking and running routes. We would love to come back again.
    Mrs Miller - July 2013
    Enough place for a normal family. All equipment we needed was in.
    Mr. Wichmann - August 2012
    Nice bungalow with a good level of equipment and furnishings. Very comfortable and a good homely feel. Despite being in a remote area of Scotland, it's in a small group of houses that gives a bit of a towny feel - we might have preferred fewer neighbours. Lovely forest walk literally on the doorstep, just turn left out of the drive. Apart from this, the area definitely requires a car to get anywhere and the roads are single track and slow. Would have been nice to have a little more local information available, perhaps a map of the area with some walks etc. marked up on it. Plenty of books and games to keep you amused on the wet days. Handy for Mull, Ardnamurchan peninsula, Ben Nevis, Mallaig, Oban etc.
    Mr Carrington - August 2011
    Braefoot was the ideal holiday for us as a family, time to recharge batteries, relax,and enjoy family time without mobile phones and computers!. We never tired of the ever changing scenery and the laid back lifestyle. Will definately be back to our little piece of heaven.
    Mrs Mackenzie - August 2011
    A lovely little cottage in an ideal location for touring the Arndamurchan area . Very well equiped with all the essentials for cooking and eating. Clean and tidy with comfortable beds and cosy lounge area, just right for a relaxing holiday. Will visit again
    Mr Leitch - July 2010
